Thanks - those are pretty rough audience recordings that I will probably have to skip. I know I'll never listen to them. Anyone know if there's a SBD version?

Wish I knew what the 47 tracks were. Guess it doesn't matter - so many other shows to check out!

In actuality this is a real fine audience recording that my friend J.J. Hance and his friends worked really hard on to restore and put here for our listening pleasure.I would hope that as you become more familiar with this site and others you will learn to appreciate the hard work that others put forth so we could click a mouse and listen to these recordings.
As to your questions,no sbd has turned up. The track listings are as follows:
Tracks 1-7 -early show acoustic set GD
Tracks 9-31-New Riders of the Purple Sage early and late sets.If you are not familiar they are a band Jerry formed with some friends and Mickey Hart,in which Jerry played pedal steel guitar.They opened a number of shows in 70'-71'.
Tracks 33-45- late show electric set GD
Track 47-probably late show acoustic GD

No hard work on my part,I thought I would just point out that a lot of work went into taping these originally,and more work went into readying them for digital transfer and such.

If you think those (June 24th, 1970) are rough, take a listen to this:-

Fortunately to be rectified by means of the 'up and coming' Europe '72 'Complete Recordings' box set (or, more accurately, treasure trove) - Thank heavens I threw any semblance of financial responsibility to the four winds and put my name down for one of the 'Limited Edition' copies.

Not long now - ticking off the days ...............

This place will be impossible after that comes out. All of you who got it will be gloating, and the few of us who didn't will be begging for you to host a listening party. Which we'll have to pay for, however, cuz we'll be the only ones with money left :-)

How far does $450 go in Thailand, fella? There are kids STARVING cuz you bought that box set! (Well, OK, maybe not, but I'll try that angle anyway ...)

Heh 'Alth' (forgive me for being so familiar), a number of things come to mind:-

#1 - What's the betting that the music hits free download sites like 'Pirate Bay' quite early (allowing for the time and effort in uploading all 72 [or is is 73/74/75 now?] discs) ???? So all is not lost .........

#2 - I made the mistake (one of many!!!) of referring to Thailand as a '3rd world nation' once only to be corrected by one of my 'buddies' (yep, he was a yank) who pointed out that (unlike some countries in e.g. Africa), although they might not all be millionaires, you never see anyone starving in Thailand (OK, I haven't visited any of the refugee camps in and around the Thai-Burma border recently). Food is both cheap and plentiful here although the western/european stuff that I was brought up on is less common and hence more expensive. Suffice to say that I won't suffer too much of a guilt trip as and when 'the package' arrives. Tho' I will have a hard job explaining to the kids that there ain't a lot of money left for their birthday presents for the next few years - but I'll burn them copies of those '72 Wembley shows so they can enjoy them in their rooms all night long .......

#3 - One thing that does worry me though is getting the stuff through customs - the Thais love to tax anything to the hilt that comes from overseas so I'm expecting a substantial level of duty to be charged over and above the list price, which I will have to pay, before the man from UPS hands over the goodies. Now it's your turn to feel sorry for me - what "No chance" ?

#4 - Listening party? Good idea, and I promise not to charge if you take the trouble to travel here - OK, flights ain't cheap but we can put you up free if you can handle the journey.

Anyway, enough of my excuses, best wishes,

Tidewater-4-10-0-9

Yup, I was being satirical or whatever on No. 2. The whole "starving children in fill-in-the-blank" idea. I think of Thailand as a country that's doing pretty well, actually, and certainly not full of swollen-bellied children. Even here, though it's nobody's idea of a rich nation (used to be one of the world's poorest), and even though there are food deficit areas and under-nutrition is common for various complex reasons, the image of "starving children" would be WAY too ... cliche? Melodramatic? Simplistic?

I will say I'm pretty aware of $450 being more than double the monthly income of a pretty high-level public servant. What in the U.S. would be called "mid-career professional." And over four times the monthly salary of a cook, driver, etc.

Not that I'd really say, "Why you spoiled people! That box set costs more than lots of people earn a month!" I mean, I'm sure that if I went around playing E72 music to people who earn $50 or $80 a month (not unusual here) and asking them if they'd LIKE to have the ability to spend $450 to buy a whole bunch of it, more than a few would say, "Sure, absolutely! Find me that job, and I'll happily sign up!"

>Food is both cheap and plentiful here although the western/european stuff that I was brought up on is less common and hence more expensive

LOL, just came back from my Monthly Self-Torture Grocery Trip to the Big Pseudo-Western Grocery Store, which I only do to be kind to the kiddo. No, I did not spend $10 on the single available packet of Swiss cheese. (For that much I want something in French.) I did get a single tube of (ick) Pringles as a treat. Which I would NEVER buy in the States. Most of the imported stuff seems to be called something like Chees-O-Whiz or Choc-o-Crap. You know what I mean. (E72 is certainly a better deal than that stuff.)

The fresh mangoes on the street (where we mostly shop) are wonderful, though!!!

Yea this is one of the all time greats (at least according to many) that exist in awful quality with no known better recordings in existance, a true shame... Over some time getting into the out there early stuff I suggest you revisit these shows.

I just listened to the DS > Attics and am now flying high on this other one. If you like the other one at all, this is monster no matter how much the sound sucks.

don't know if you saw my suggestion in a different thread. But I think the Alpine 89 (July 17, 18 and 19 1989) run would be right up your alley. Likely the best 3 day run (or 3 date stretch) played by the band in all of 89, a really hot year.
